Fortnite is back. After 40 hours of being offline following the to end , the popular battle royale game is back as .
Developer Epic Games released the update for Fortnite Chapter 2 on Tuesday, and it made a lot of changes to the game. There’s a whole new map along with new weapons, actions and other subtle differences to improve the experience for players.
Epic didn’t provide any patch notes listing all the changes, so this article will be updated whenever new info is discovered.
Chapter 2 season 1 rundown
For starters, there is a new map in the game, and it’s bigger than the previous chapter. There are 13 new locations for players to drop in at, but the map is greyed out until a player actually travels to that area.
Boats are now found on the island, and to reach them players can now swim in the water. The previous island didn’t have very deep water so players would simply run through lakes and rivers slowly. Swimming lets players make their way through bodies of water at a fairly quick pace, and players can float in the water while shooting certain weapons.
Players can also fish. Not only will this give a bit of peace of mind, but the fish caught can also give some health and shield bonuses.
Upgrade machines are found in certain parts of the map letting players trade in a certain amount of materials to improve their weapons.
There are also new team dynamics added in Fortnite Chapter 2. Players can now carry their teammates who have been downed, meaning they’ve had their health reduced to zero and crawl on the ground until they’re revived or eliminated. There is also a new Bandage Bazooka letting players heal each other from a distance. Teams can also celebrate together with new team emotes.
Haystacks and dumpsters are now something to keep an eye on. These hideouts are spots for players to get the jump on others giving a bit of stealth to the game. Those who want a loud approach can find explosive barrels and gas tanks to make some noise and do damage.
The default characters also had an outfit and graphical upgrade.
Fortnite Chapter 2 also has a new Battle Pass and things are made a little easier this time around. During a match, players will earn badges for surviving longer than other players, gathering materials and eliminating other players. A Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks, or approximately $9.50, but subscribers can earn 1,500 V-Bucks throughout the season that could pay for the next season pass.
Fortnite is available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, and Android and iOS devices.
